2. Did a Temple exist below the Babri Mosque ? #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The moot question is whether a Hindu temple existed below the Babri Masjid. All 3 judges in Allahabad High Court have answered in the affirmative.And the reason is the meticulous investigation by the archaeological Survey of India on the courts orders in 2003 #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
the Allahabad High Court ordered the ASI to do a survey first to find out if there was a Temple beneath the Babri Mosque, using the Ground Penetrating Radar and gave a report to the court on February 2003. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
ASI was brought into the picture by the court on its own in 2002, not by any party or the Government. ASI did the GPR Survey & excavation under the orders of the court & under supervision of two Judicial officers appointed by court #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Based on the ASI reports In 2003 Allahabad High Court ordered the excavation of the Bhagwan Ram Jana Bhoomi Site by ASI. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
It formed an impartial team of 131 excavators which included 52 muslims .the excavation was conducted in the presence of the representatives of BMAC group viz Suraj Bhan. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
These excavations were conducted under eminent archeologists like Dr.B,R.Mani . Those who represented BAMC were mere historians, few archeologists representing them had no knowledge of field archeology and were dwarfs in front of Dr.BR.Mani #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
ASI excavated 90 trenches in 5 months and submitted its report. It states under the heading “The Massive Structure below the Disputed Structure” : As stated the disputed structure of Babri Masjid (3) was found directly resting over an earlier construction. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
ASI came to the conclusion on the basis of excavations that there existed a temple beneath the Babri Masjid. And submitted a 574 page report to Allahabad High Court #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The artifacts that were found during the ASI excavation include A stone plaque called Vishnu Hari Shila, on the plaque it was inscribed in Nagari Script11-12th century #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
In Sanskrit it was inscribed “this temple is dedicated to Vishnu (Ram is the avatar of Vishnu) who killed Bali &10 headed Ravana“.This is as clear as it gets. More than 50 brick foundations which once supported the pillars of a temple were found , #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
the ‘amalaka’ which is usually found on the top of the temple and ‘makar pranali’ through which the ‘abhisheka’ water flows were also excavated. In all 263 temple related artefacts were found #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Let me put out the summary of ASI result as follows #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The Northern Block Polished Ware (NBPW) using people were the first to occupy the disputed site at Ayodhya during the first millennium BC. This period may be assigned to circa 1000 BC to 300 BC. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The Suguna horizon (second-First century BC) were the next to occupy this site. “typical terracotta mother goddess , human and animal figures.. represent cultural mix of this level”. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The Kushan period ( first to third century AD) followed the Suguna occupation. The advent of Guptas (fourth to sixth century AD) is represented by the typical terracotta figurines and copper coins. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
During the post Gupta Rajput period (7th Century AD) too the site witnessed structural activity including a circular brick shrine. Though the structure is damaged the northern wall still retains a provision for pranala (waterchute) #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Subsequently(11th-12th Century AD) a huge structure was constructed,which seems to have been short-lived. On the remains of above structure was constructed a massive structure with at least 3 structural phases & 3 successive floors attached to it #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
It is on top of this construction during the early 16th Century , the disputed structure was constructed directly resting over it #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Finally the ASI summed up to the question put to it by the court ‘whether there was any temple/structure which was demolished and a mosque was constructed on the disputed site “ . #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
ASI “ Now, viewing in totality and taking into account archeological evidence of a massive structure just below the disputed structure and evidence of continuity in structural phases from the 10th century upwords up to construction of the disputed structure #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
Along with the yield of stone and decorated bricks.. amalaka, kapotapali doorjamb with semi-circular pilaster, broken octagonal shaft of black schist pillar, lotus motif, circular shrine, having pranala(water chute) #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
In the North, are indicative of remains which are distinctive features associated with the temples of north India”. This report by ASI played a crucial role in determining the critical issue before the court. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
On the basis of ASI evidence all three Judges of Allahabad High Court have answered in the affirmative the existence of a temple below the Babri Masjid. #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The Muslim parties attacked the ASI work in court, they alleged that BJP was ruling them, they did not include sufficient muslims etc. despite the presence of 52 members in the 131 member ASI team , The court severely reprimanded their conduct #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
The Muslim parties attacked the ASI before the court Judgement and the presstitutes attacked the ASI after the Judgement. Reason ASI proved the existence of temple beneath the Babri Mosque . #AyodhyaHiddenFacts
